WoW [217] - The Angels' Share

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Title: The Angels' Share  
Author: J.R. Ward
Series: The Bourbon Kings #2
Release Date: July 26th, 2016

In Charlemont, Kentucky, the Bradford family is the crème de la crème of high society—just like their exclusive brand of bourbon. And their complicated lives and vast estate are run by a discrete staff who inevitably become embroiled in their affairs. This is especially true now, when the apparent suicide of the family patriarch is starting to look more and more like murder…

No one is above suspicion—especially the eldest Bradford son, Edward. The bad blood between him and his father is known far and wide, and he is aware that he could be named a suspect. As the investigation into the death intensifies, he keeps himself busy at the bottom of a bottle—as well as with his former horse trainer’s daughter. Meanwhile, the family’s financial future lies in the perfectly manicured hands of a business rival, a woman who wants Edward all to herself.

Everything has consequences; everybody has secrets. And few can be trusted. Then, at the very brink of the family’s demise, someone thought lost to them forever returns to the fold. Maxwell Bradford has come home. But is he a savior...or the worst of all the sinners?
Why I am waiting:
This series sounds really interesting. I think I'll wait to see a few reviews of this one before I go buy it, though. Let me know if you've read this one or book one and enjoyed!

What book are you waiting on this week?

  1. Ahhh I really wanted to read the first book when it came out but I just didn't get to it yet. So it looks like I have two books to look forward to then. :P

  2. Well, you know me. I'm paranormal all the way, but this being J.R. Ward I had to try it. I got sucked into this! Bourbon Kings was good, but now that I know the characters better, Angels' Share was amazing. I don't really know what genre you would really call it because it's not really a romance, more of a mystery type drama. I should have a review up soon.
